Following the film’s screening at the Sundance Film Festival and the SXSW Film Festival this year, “Them That Follow” released a new trailer. The thriller hits theaters later this summer and stars Olivia Colman, Kaitlyn Dever, Alice Englert, Jim Gaffigan, Walton Goggins, Thomas Mann, and Lewis Pullman.
Britt Poulton and Dan Madison Savage wrote and directed the film, which will officially release at the specialty box office on August 2, 2019.
Deep in Appalachia, Pastor Lemuel Childs (Walton Goggins) presides over an isolated community of serpent handlers, an obscure sect of Pentecostals who willingly take up venomous snakes to prove themselves before God. As his devoted daughter, Mara (Alice Englert) prepares for her wedding day, under the watchful eye of Hope Slaughter (Academy Award Winner Olivia Colman), a dangerous secret is unearthed and she is forced to confront the deadly tradition of her father’s church.
Fans of the genre can watch the official trailer for “Them Than Follow” below, thanks to an upload from 1091 on Thursday morning.
“Them That Follow” will release against “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.” That same weekend is the specialty box office release of the drama thriller “Luce,” with Naomi Watts, Octavia Spencer, and Tim Roth. The other thrillers releasing in August include “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark,” “47 Meters Down: Uncaged,” and “Ready or Not.”
Fans of the genre will want to check local listings to see if “Them That Follow” releases in a local theater. The film should get a digital and VOD release date down the road, so if you don’t have the chance to see it on the big screen, you can keep it on your radar for a rainy night.
